Bensham & Teams


Bensham and Teams Make Art Happen project created a visual and sound artwork made up of multiple components created by a local people that enhanced a community space for local residents to enjoy and feel a sense of pride in.

Bensham and Teams Arts Project delivered a programme of high quality participatory visual arts and music activities for residents of Bensham and Teams in 2016.

Delivering 4 workshops the artists worked with the local community to create sound pieces and art using recycled materials to enhance the local urban environment.
